Love Is in the Air – or Is It? Bedroom Renovation
You just loved your new bedroom design when you first met in the beginning! But now it’s been 5, 10, 15 years (hopefully not that long) and the love just isn’t there anymore. You come home from a long day and let out a long sigh. Where did the love go? Well, you’re not alone. It may be long overdue for a bedroom renovation, and we’ve got you covered.
Bedroom Renovation: Should I Renovate or Update?
This is the most important question you need to ask yourself. Sometimes it may just take a little pillow here or maybe a splash of color there or even a little accent piece over yonder to improve the quality of your bedroom. Now, if the last time you improved your bedroom’s decor, the Brady Bunch or Magnum PI (the original) was still on in first-run, then a full renovation needs to be on the table.
El Cheapo or Mucho Grande?
Ok, ok, budget friendly or spare no expense? Cost is normally the next step in the process. Some ideas can be accomplished on a smaller budget, but if you’re looking for your bedroom to look like the Taj Mahal, be prepared to open your wallet wide. Another factor that can increase or decrease the overall costs is location. Where you live can make or break your spending budget. HGTV has a great article on Budgeting for Your Bedroom Remodel.
Research the Trends
Do you want you new bedroom to flow with the rest of your home decor or are you looking to create a whole new oasis to serve as an in-home get-a-way? Look at colors, styles, textures, personalization, and more to get a feel of what you’re going for visually and functionally. Having a great balance of visual style and functionality is key. You don’t want the space to look like you don’t want to touch anything in the room, but you also want every part of the room to have purpose. Homes & Gardens gives us a look at the latest bedroom renovation & remodel trends for 2021. Be sure to see what they recommend in order to help you achieve the style that fits you.
